Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four asking, “why”.

Origin Story

I graduated with a degree in fine art from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. After graduation, I worked for my school’s library as the de facto “person who could fix the computers”, and for a boutique interior design firm hand-painting custom wallpaper. On a whim, I stated to teach myself HTML and digital design.

Lucky for me, NYC’s nascent Silicon Alley scene provided ample opportunities to learn new things from friends and mentors. I combined what I learned in art school with new skills in coding, and human psychology. I moved from web designer and art director to teacher and user experience designer. I love creating tools that make people’s lives easier.

My Perspective

I’m a liberal, progressive, intersectional feminist. I value transparency, inclusivity, and an anti-racist agenda.

I’m a semi-retired practitioner of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Currently, spending my free time mountain biking on the great trails of Pennsylvania. I love to cook and share food with my family and friends. And there‘s a good chance I’m listening to a podcast right now.

My pronouns are he/him/his.
